Firefox 4 beta looks promising

Written by Fudzilla staff


HTML5, CSS3, new tabs, improved UI
Firefox is about to enter its fourth generation and unlike previous revisions, version 4 should bring quite a few novelties.

There are quite a few cosmetic changes. For example, tabs have been relocated to the top of the screen, much like in Google’s Chrome. There’s also a new switch-to-tab feature and a ‘Firefox’ button which should reduce clutter in the UI.

Firefox 4 will also offer quite a few new features under the bonnet. It packs a new add-on manager to help reduce bloating and will supposedly improve privacy. There’s also some new technologies to look forward to. It will support HTML5, CSS3, JetPack SDK, new web console and websocket protocols.
Most importantly, Mozilla claims it will be “faster, faster, faster”.

Check it out, here.

We can 'look forward' to HTML5 and CSS3 support?

And yet when Apple include support for these in its browser they are suddenly 'their closed version of open standards' ?

Opera and Safari are both closed, there's no winning formula in that.

Can't people understand that security is dependent on how much access coders and experts have to the source code of the browser?

Can't they also get that an open browser can be extended either via Mozilla's support or by 3rd parties without huge cost implications and royalty premiums if it's open source? We all like out extensions, don't we?

Also consider that most bugs reported to Mozilla are reviewed while on the MS and apple side you need to beg them to take a look, never-mind that they won't fix anything unless they get some form of payment. Yeah, winning-formula!

Looks look. Hope they improve speed and memory management, but overall I'm happy with the Firefox! :D

According to benchmarks it is about as fast as IE9 so far, with the overall speed king being Opera 10.6

Benchmarks are so pointless. People are constantly basing browsers on things like the Acid test which has no relevance in the real world.

I HATE this comment box. I have more than 40 symbols left and i get text too long!!!!

P L E A S E fix it already. It's good you add more symbols but even when we had less symbols it gave text too long even if i had 20 more symbols.

So now i wont comment. I hate when i have to delete and delete text till it fits some imaginary limit unknown to me.
